Here is a radio broadcast in English calling out for solidarity with the Hambach Forest in Germany, which is currently under imminent threat of eviction. There is information that the evictions will take place between now and the end of September, before the cutting season begins on October 1st. Already in the last few days, large numbers of police were in the forest evicting barricades.
Since 1978, the company RWE has been destroying more of the forest every year to expand one of three massive open cast brown coal mines in the region. People have been occupying since over 6 years to hinder their work. Let´s make a big resistance this year to save what´s left of the forest, and to stop this profit-crazed coal rush.
As many people as possible are needed to come to join the defense of the forest, climb up in the trees, support from the ground, act in solidarity elsewhere and stop them from cutting the trees.
Youâll find the latest news at https://hambacherforst.org or https://hambachforest.org in English and https://foretdehambach.org/ in French.
There will be a Skillsharing camp between 22nd September and 3rd October. Around that time will probably be the reoccupation if the treehouses are evicted.
An Ende Gelaende mass action will take place between 25th-29th October (more info at https://www.ende-gelaende.org ).
There are also other mass actions planned that donât yet have a fixed date, but will be called out for on Day X, when they start cutting trees or evicting the occupation.
Aktion Unterholz will contribute to the resistance with civil disobedience https://aktion-unterholz.org/
Stop the evictions! No tree shall fall! Leave the coal in the hole!
